Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Lap/Lap and a half and the q2's are ready to go. I was probably running 40's at Thunderbolt when I switched to race tires. According to Cardenas, they're good into the 23's

I didn't blame the tires, I thought it sounded like Bob was blaming my Pirelli track day slicks, but I got on Dunlop AMA takeoffs early in the year before the crashing began.

Yes Tom, I thought you were on the trackday slicks. Where were you getting the takeoffs from? Usually the Dunlop fronts last forever...

The trackday slicks are damn good for about 10 laps then they overheat if you are fast

A team on on sv was doing full four hour endurance races on them though .

I got a set from Chris during the CMP round, I think they were Frankie's 2011 AMA tires from NJMP.

I used to get Frankie's takeoffs and do a full race weekend plus 3 trackdays on them.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

That's the way to go out for sure.....as world champ and with your health intact. He's really redeemed himself over the last couple years in WSBK. I think it really helped heal his image. Back in MotoGP as Rossi's nemesis he got a really bad rep as being a supreme whiner.

Since moving over to WSBK and showing a much better work ethic and more maturity I think he's looked at in a lot more favorable light. Good for him.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I wonder who is going to take his place...

And I wonder if he came to that conclusion after Rae passed him on the straight at Portimao

Eugene Laverty already was on the team and it looks like Althea (since they cancelled their partnership with Ducati) is moving over to Aprilia and bringing Davide Giuliano with them.

I never said there was anything wrong with any tires anywhere in this thread.

Isn't Althea a satellite team, though? I thought Biaggi and Laverty were factory riders.

I didnt say you did, I'm just saying that I rode on those tires for a long time without issues.

Althea Racing is the group the Ducati outsourced its factory racing program through, similar to Alstare Suzuki or Ten Kate Honda. Before the Ducati factory team left WSBK, yes Althea was a satellite team. That changed in 2011 when they took over the factory effort with support from the Ducati factory.

Ducati and A.R. couldn't come to terms for 2013
http://roadracingworld.com/news/article/?article=50183

So A.R. went to look elsewhere. Carlos Checa is contracted to Ducati, Davide Giuliani is contracted to Althea.


A.R. is likely going to partner with Aprilia for 2013, Aprilia lost their Alitalia sponsorship in 2012. Eugene Laverty had a 2 year contract for 2012-13, hence one seat was filled. Max's contract was up in 2012, he chose to retire, Giuliano takes the other seat with Althea coming on board.
